New Balance has revealed F.C. Tokyo’s bespoke Third strip for the 2021 season.
The shirt is introduced in a black shade, drawing inspiration from the unmistakable Tokyo Sky Tree and Tokyo Tower – Japan’s tallest structure for more than fifty years.
A bold central graphic reminiscent of the lit-up towers in the summer night is added in club’s symbolic blue and red shades ensuring a modern twist on the classic design.
Equipped with innovative NB Dry technology, the jersey is engineered to help keep players fresh and dry. Matching shorts help to complete the look.
The 2021 strips are part of New Balances ‘You are Tokyo’ campaign that aims to celebrate Japanese football fans in the capital, uniting them through F.C. Tokyo.
Kenny McCallum, General Manager at New Balance Football, said:
“Tokyo Tower is one of Japan’s iconic landmarks and visible from every corner of the city. Just like F.C. Tokyo, the building has a rich history and is a key part of the city’s identity.
New Balance was keen to harness its influence on the local landscape as a fantastic source of inspiration for the team to wear on their travels”.
F.C. Tokyo midfielder and New Balance athlete, Hirotaka Mita, said:
“New Balance have really impressed me with their design. Tokyo Sky Tree and Tokyo Tower is so familiar to all the players, fans and supporters. We are looking forward to wearing a small reminder of Tokyo’s incredible skyline whenever we have to play away from home”.
The F.C. Tokyo 2021 Third Jersey is now on-sale in limited numbers.
